This season’s Preservation Brown Bag Series focuses on Staunton’s neighborhoods: where are they, what anchors them, and how we support their presence into the future. April’s Brown Bag featured landscape architect Amy R. Arnold’s presentation “Staunton Neighborhoods: a Town within a Town”. The talk included an overview of formerly independent communities absorbed into the city limits at particular points in Staunton’s history: a town within a town. Two communities introduced during this session were Plunkettville to the west of central Staunton and the post-Civil War historic African American Community of Uniontown to the east.
